German Consulate in Cebu, Philippines
« on: May 02, 2009, 11:02:24 AM »
To provide consular services to a growing number of German citizens in the country, Germany re-opened its honorary consulate office in Cebu after 100 years.

The German Government appointed long-time Cebu resident Dr. Franz Seidenschwarz, a botanist who teaches at the University of San Carlos-Talamban Campus, honorary consul.

“We are proud to re-establish our presence in this historic and dynamic city. The new consul will promote business, cultural, and scientific activities in Cebu. And Dr. Seidenschwarz is the right man at the right place,” said Ambassador Christian-Ludwig Weber-Lortsch,.

Weber-Lortsch said the first honorary consul of Germany based in Cebu was appointed in 1871 but “disappeared” in 1910. Since then, Germany opted to close the honorary consulate. - Sun Star Zamboanga
